Following the President of the United States’ proposal to defund
the Legal Services Corporation (LCS), Portland City Commissioner Nick
Fish wrote an Op-Ed piece for Street Roots supporting the program.
Fish has been a longtime supporter of the
Campaign for Equal Justice (CEJ), an organization Paulson Coletti attorney Jane Paulson serves on the board
of and that that fights to ensure every Oregonian has access to justice,
no matter their financial situation. Over the past quarter-century, CEJ
has raised more than $25 million dollars in support of its efforts and
continues to work with bar organizations and lawyers to work towards increasing
federal and state funding for legal aid.
